The Literacy Project
To date, The Literacy Project has helped more than 6,000 struggling readers throughout Coachella Valley, Long Beach, Orange County, and Los Angeles school districts. In 2012, the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE), Evaluation, Data and Assessment Center (EDAC) completed an independent review and concluded, “Tested students began the program with lower reading skills than the comparison group, and tested significantly higher than non-participating students at the end of the program. Despite different grades, ages and schools, participating students consistently out-performed their classmates who were not enrolled in the reading program.” The on-going and demonstrated success of the program led EADC to write an addendum Executive Data Summary (February 2014) to its previous report stating that TLP’s program impact excelled beyond the previous findings—participating students improved an average of three-fourths a grade level or equivalent to seven months of classroom instruction over the course of TLP’s literacy program.
